Program: EUROKEY lock release, press conference
In the framework of the project "Without borders and barriers" SKHU / 1601 / 4.1 / 239 in Nógrád and Banská Bystrica County, a grant application for the disabled, implemented by the Slovak Association of Disabled Persons in Salgótarján, is funded by the European Union won with. The Banská Bystrica organization is known as Partnerstvo Gemera-Malohontu.
The so-called Euro Key System is introduced in Hungary by this program, but in Western Europe there are millions of such keys for people with reduced mobility. The essence of the system is that disabled people have a key to open, close and operate toilets at gas stations and other institutions, and to control the use of various staircases and elevators independently. They are also supported by an application on a smart phone, tablet, and other devices that provide access to key-opening locations. The introduction and dissemination of the system in Hungary is an important aid for people with reduced mobility to lead a more independent lifestyle.
The program provided the first opportunity in Hungary to install such a locking device at two locations in Nógrád County: the Mátraverebély-Szentkút and the Attila József Cultural and Conference Center in Salgótarján.
